CISSP Qualification Given Cert Status Equivalent to Master’s Degree Level

We found this article on infosecurity-magazine and wanted- no, needed –  to share it with you. It’s great news.

Especially for those wanting the opportunity working in Europe. And hey, we think this might just roll on over to SA….

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification has been granted a qualification level equal to that of a master’s degree across Europe. The qualification was designated as comparable to Level 7 of the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) by UK NARIC, the UK’s designated national agency responsible for providing information and expert guidance on qualifications from across the world.

The change will enable cybersecurity professionals to use the CISSP certification towards higher education course credit and also open up new opportunities for roles that require or recognize master’s degrees. The new designation will apply both to the UK and across Europe.

CISSP requires skills such as organizational problem solving and decision making and awareness and correct use of industrial standards, policy and best practice.

“Recognizing the CISSP as comparable to master’s level qualifications further underlines the robust educational and operational value of the certification within Europe,” said Deshini Newman, managing director EMEA at (ISC)2. “It will support our members in their career progression as they embark on opportunities both within their own organizations and externally when applying for roles with degree entry criteria.”
